Blueberry Pie

I think we can all agree that one of the best parts of summer is the fabulous fresh berries that are available. Most berries, like strawberries and raspberries, I love eating plain from a bowl. Blueberries, on the other hand, I think are much better when cooked. I like plain blueberries, but when they are…

Eggnog Snickerdoodles

I know Christmas is over and most of you are probably no longer in Christmas baking mode, but I thought I’d share these cookies we made on Christmas Eve anyway just because they’re awesome! Snickerdoodles have always been one of my (Celine) favorite cookies. This eggnog-flavored version, which has nutmeg and rum extract to add…

Glazed Cranberry Lemon Cake

It feels so good to be home for Christmas! Getting back into the kitchen has been one of the best parts (and just being home in general!). Leah and I got home pretty late Wednesday night, and Thursday we looked around the kitchen to see what we had and noticed there was a bag of…

Midnight Pumpkin Layer Cake

Happy belated Thanksgiving! It’s been so long since we’ve published a blog post here. Since we left for college, we sadly have not had access to a kitchen (I can’t wait to be an upperclassmen when I have a kitchen in my dorm!). College has been going really well, but it was wonderful going home…

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Éclairs

One of the first “fancy” things Leah and I ever baked was a batch of cream puffs. I’m not sure how we made that selection, but I’m glad we did! Ever since, we’ve had a fondness for anything involving pâte à choux. When one of the blogs we follow posted a recipe for chocolate covered…

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

Ice cream is a popular dessert option in our house, and probably anyone’s house, but our two youngest brothers don’t always eat the more “adventurous” flavors we try (such as pistachio, even though it’s technically a classic flavor!). They were, however, thrilled when we decided to make cookies and cream ice cream, and Henry even…

Cherry Almond Dutch Baby

You know how there are some things that you don’t cook with or eat that often? It’s not that you dislike them, it’s just that you and that ingredient never seem to cross paths. For us, that ingredient is cherries. They occasionally end up in our fridge, but they’re not really one of our go-to…

Strawberry Lemonade Cookies

We’ve made a lovely strawberry frosting before, and while it is amazing and just right for frosting on a cake, it’s difficult to get a lot of strawberry flavor into the frosting without compromising the texture and thinning it out (unless you want to use some sort of artificially-flavored strawberry something, which we generally don’t…

Raspberry Lemonade Bars

During the summer, I don’t tend to crave rich, warm chocolatey desserts as much as I do during the winter. It’s not that I would say no a chocolate chip cookie (who would?), it’s just that I prefer to have something a little more refreshing. Homemade ice cream, fruit cobblers, and anything involving lemon are…

Cherry Chip Cake

Even though maraschino cherries definitely have a strange color, I (Leah) really enjoy them on ice cream sundaes and in Shirley Temples. Since I love these cherries so much, I was immediately drawn to this cake recipe when I saw it months ago. Celine and I hadn’t made it until now, though, because some people…
